The One Secret That Will Make Your Brand More Visible
By Jacqui Antonetti, Instant Imprints
Few months ago we talked about 4 Reasons Why Branding Is Not A Waste of Money. Today we want to talk about the most effective way to create that brand visibility that is so necessary not only to stay in business, but also to foster growth.
With so many brands out there, driving attention to your brand can be really challenging. So, here’s a little “secret”: buying is an emotions driven process! Believe it or not, this happens every single time a person makes a purchasing decision, regardless of his/her levels of rationality and logical thinking. It’s the emotion what triggers the thought process that justifies the purchase. I’m not going to spend too much time backing up what I just said (should I say ‘wrote’?) You can check this out yourself by looking within, asking people you know how they make their buying decisions, and/or looking this up on the Internet. There are countless examples that prove it.
Now, let’s play a little imagination game and say that you verified what I said above and that I am right. The next logical thought may be “what does that have to do with making my brand more visible?” The answer to this question is simple. If you make people feel good about what you offer, not only they will want to buy from you over and over again, but they will also want to share their experience with others, which will make your brand more visible.
However, that’s not the only thing you need to take into account. This is the first step, but certainly not the only one. Here are a few other elements I recommend you to keep in mind in order to get the right exposure.
And of course, remember to make sure you include your logo, other brand elements (like icons) and your contact information everywhere you can think of. At Instant Imprints, we would be more than happy to provide you a free consultation to listen and assist you with your brand visibility needs.

Spring is approaching and with it comes along the opportunities for outdoor work. Not only is a great season for landscaping, construction and home renovations, to name a few, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to capitalize on those jobs by making your business more visible while you work.
Here are some tips for you to apply whenever possible to make your business grow in a more efficient way by making it easy for your prospects to find you while you focus on doing a great job for your existing clients.
I read an article, recently that advised me to "get out of my comfort zone" if I wanted to grow.
It's not the first time I've heard that advice. It's also not the first time that I've thought "that's one of the silliest things I've ever heard".
The risk takers of the world, the assertive personalities, those who are fulfilled by constant challenge always see that as the only path to growth.
I don't begrudge them that kind of thinking, that's what works for them. But they're not the whole world, in fact, they aren't even the majority. So, what about the rest of us… we want to grow too.
The addition of just one word to that advice would make it workable for all.
"In order to grow, I must be prepared to TEMPORARILY abandon my comfort zone."
I am up for a little discomfort to find something new and exciting.
When you first learn to scuba dive, the feel and fit of a wetsuit is pretty uncomfortable. The seat of a bicycle is not your friend when you first started to ride long distances. Everybody has more "left thumbs" when learning new skills and tasks, like embroidery.
But those were all temporary situations. With time, instruction, and practice you learn to make each of those both comfortable and fun. In fact, they may now be at the root of some of your biggest accomplishments in life.
The same is true of my adventures in personal growth.
Every time, I have been willing to step out of my comfort zone, I have found one or both of two things to be true.
So, my advice is to reject the premise of permanent discomfort, unless you like that kind of thing.
Use the power of "temporary" to learn and grow without abandoning what is important to you and what you have already earned.

There are really 6 systems that are fundamental, absolutely essential, to the healthy operation of any and every business.
Those 6 systems are the one's highlighted on the document that we call
"5 Stages of Business Growth". (If you need a copy of that document click on the title link and it will take you to a Google Docs copy that you can download and print).
In past posts I have talked about the first two of those systems.
Right Message/Best System - the system that you will use to create the right advertising message for your business and define who needs to hear it (your Best Customer).
Customer Action Plan - the system that lays out the ACTIONS you will take, to get that message to your customers - future, present and past.
Today I would like to spend some time with the third system on our big six, hit parade - Revenue and Expense Management.
Money will come in to your business (revenue, sales, income) and money will go out (expenses). It is always the job of the owner to manage both sides of that equation and manage it to a happy ending.
There are any number of systems that you can use to do this. It could be as simple handwritten ledger or as complex as QuickBooks or something in between.
Whatever tool you choose, it should help you to keep track of four things.
The Balance Sheet is where that information gets captured.(eg - putting money into the business or taking money out of the business for equipment purchases etc).
And last but not least - Cash.
There is an old saying that goes something like - "A business with poor profit and good cash, will survive.... but a business with good profit and poor cash will fail."
Being aware of the cash that the business is generating and what is in the bank, at least on a monthly basis, is just good sense.
Cash in a business is can be seasonal. Cash might be positive by the end of the year but there could be months, when cash is low or even negative.
Spending large amounts of cash (equipment purchase, owner's draw etc), in those months, could be devastating for this business.
I'll be back in a few weeks to talk about a Cash Gap Plan.
A sign's mission in life is to make your business more visible.
We "speak signs" fluently.... and would be happy to help you find the size, shape and price that fits your needs.
